Aviva UK now have an opening for an Investment Operations Analyst to join us on a 6-month FTC (fixed term contract). This position will be part of our Investment Reporting team within Investment Operations. The team works with a wide range of investment-related partners both internally and externally, seeking to be a centre of operational excellence within Aviva Finance Operations (AFO).

The Investment Reporting team has responsibility for the sourcing, validation and reporting of accurate investment asset data to cover the spectrum of assets held by Aviva markets. Key downstream uses include actuarial asset stressing, regulatory and statutory reporting, credit risk reporting and internal investment management and ALM. These processes rely on high-quality and accurate data to avoid potential financial losses, regulatory breaches and reputational issues in the marketplace.

We’re looking for those with investment experience and knowledge to analyse each of the items in question and then to engage with investment specialists both internally and externally to resolve any potential data issues, gaps or concerns. We believe this role will be interesting and challenging to those who like working on large implementation projects and the opportunity to embed new processes.

Aviva now uses “smart-working”, and the person in this role can be based anywhere in the UK, as long as they are comfortable regularly travelling to one of our offices (London, York, Norwich, Bristol, Edinburgh, etc).


The role’s duties & responsibilities

The main purpose of this position is reviewing the breaks and anomalies within both investment reporting and our outsourced SaaS provider. Responsibilities include:

  • Review and investigation of daily investment data control breaks
  • Working directly with 3rd party investment providers to source and populate investment data
  • Query escalation, management and resolution
  • Working closely with our wider Investment Reporting team on potential issues
  • Skills & experiences required:
  • IOC (Investment Operations Certificate) or equivalent investment qualifications
  • Experience working with investment products, structures and data attributes
  • Background of working with large and sophisticated datasets
  • Track record of confident communication skills with both external and internal business partners
  • Comfortable working at pace to fixed time frames
  • Experience with the insurance industry and assets is desirable


What will you get for this role?

  • A salary up to £38,000 depending on location, skills, experience and qualifications
  • Generous defined contribution pension scheme
  • Holiday allowance of 29 days plus bank holidays and the option to buy/sell up to 5 additional days (Pro Rata)
  • Up to 40% discount for some Aviva products through “My Aviva Extras” plus discounts for Friends and Family (some exclusions apply)
  • Excellent range of flexible benefits to include a matching share save scheme


Working at Aviva

At Aviva, we’re people with a purpose. To be with you today, for a better tomorrow.

We bring this to life by ensuring managing risk is at the heart of the way we all work. We love people who do the right thing for our customers, and our colleagues. We want people who speak up, who take ownership, and who make good decisions.

The way we do this is important too, we’re all about our people – that’s you – so we can be pretty flexible. If you want to work from home some of the time or change your hours so you can pick up your kids or care for someone in your family, we’re very open to that. In fact, we don’t advertise roles as either part or full time, because we know each person has different needs, just as each business area has different needs. So, it’s up to you to discuss working hours during your interview.

We care deeply about being inclusive and that means we encourage applications from people with diverse backgrounds and experiences. We want our employees to bring their whole self to work and that starts with you.
